Integrating a CCTV System in to home cinema setup.

Hello All,

I have recently installed a home cinema system and I am considering integrating my CCTV system so I can easily view camera images on any monitor in the house. I have a 4 channel DVR which I purchased from DTS Digital the system supports a composite video output and my home cinema system supports a coaxial video input. My question is how do I know the two will be compatible. I know that my DVR output is analogue but if the two are not compatible will it damage either system in anyway..?

Hello James,

Thank you for the response, yes it is a phono socket on the system which is RCA if I'm not mistaken. I got some other advice from another forum as well and apparently even if your CCTV system is HD the composite video output can still support analogue. I am concerned that the input on the cinema system is SDI though so may not be compatible in the end. Ultimately I need a BNC to phono plug in order to take the output from the DVR to the AV system.
